If you’ve moved to New York recently, you’re probably feeling emotions you didn’t anticipate. Chances are, most of what you’re going through is perfectly normal. Everyone who’s relocated to Gotham experiences the ups and downs, the good, the bad, and everything in between.

Your early moments of NYC Life such as the long road to landing your dream job, learning how to ride the subway, the woes of walking almost everywhere, or even dining in a delicious restaurant in a cool neighborhood, will become distant memories in a New York minute.
